I love this idea: "Find a china hutch or curio cabinet on Craigslist, paint it black, and repurpose it into an antique book cabinet." I could do this with my curio cabinet, or the maple hutch in the corner.
Add more depth to a painted finish on furniture with glaze. I used white over turquoise paint to do this furniture makeover with DIY chalk paint and glaze. The brass label holder pulls add lots of character to the piece.
The Quirky Cottage took an old discarded dresser & transformed into a gorgeous bench with storage drawers and a built in side table. Refinished in General Finishes Linen Milk Paint & Antique Walnut Gel Stain. Love this idea
